Webber downs Woodlawn

BLUFORD — Webber’s girls basketball team used a strong start and solid defense to beat Woodlawn 44-37 Thursday night.

“Overall I feel like we just kind of got outworked,” Woodlawn coach Trisha Draege said. “We’ve played them twice. We’ve split with them in the past. If we end up facing them again in regional hopefully it’s a different story.”

Sarah Ganieany and Courtney Girvan provided the Lady Trojans with consistent scoring on the inside. Girvan led all scorers with 18 points and added 15 rebounds. Ganieany finished with 14 points and six rebounds.

Webber scored the opening seven points of the game and held Woodlawn scoreless until the two-minute mark in the first quarter. Carly Ethridge ended the Lady Cardinals’ drought with a bucket to make the score 7-2.

We were slow,” Draege said. “It was like we were in slow motion the whole first half.”

Alexa Capps led Woodlawn with 13 points and seven rebounds. Most of her points came in transition off steals.

“That has to be your game plan defensively when you come in to playing Woodlawn,” Webber coach Travis Pinkston said. “You know that you have to hold her down. She can shoot from anywhere.”

Kerstie Harlow finished with 11 points for Woodlawn.

Webber pushed its lead to double digits in the second quarter. Heather Riley knocked down a shot to make the score 17-6. The Lady Trojans extended their advantage and took a 25-10 edge into halftime.

“I thought offensively we were great in the first half and came out too timid in the second half,” Pinkston said. “I don’t know any other explanation for it.”

Woodlawn chipped into the scoring deficit early in the third quarter when Ganieany went to the bench after picking up her fourth foul. Down 27-11, Woodlawn briefly cut the deficit to single digits with Autumn Urbanski hit a shot with 2:15 left. The bucket left Webber with a 39-30 lead.

Woodlawn closed to within seven with 3:37 left in the game after Kerstie Harlow putback a missed shot from Capps in transition. But the Lady Cardinals could never get closer.

Webber improved to 10-13 this season, and Woodlawn is 5-17.
